I noticed that when i start the engine of my 1500 there a sort of water mixed black coming out of my mufflers and more from the left side...

Is this normal of does it mean the carb is way to rich? When the engine warms up no more watery spitting... But i remember that once i smelled the compensator chamber and rally i could smell the gasoline!? Never had something like that in other bikes, again indication that is to much rich?

I would think normal.
Burning H and O produces H[sup]2[/sup]O and until the exhaust system warms it will drip or fog out of the exhaust especially at this time of year.

Go do some day long rides and dry the exhaust system out and then check it the next time it starts after an overnight stop.

Is your coolant level in your reservoir dropping? Hopefully you don't have a head gasket leak. My GL1100 did this - blew a little water out of the LH exhaust on startup, but surprisingly ran fine after it warmed up.
